Scholarships

The global demand for engineers is increasing. In order to address this demand, the College is focused on educating the engineering leaders of tomorrow today. To continue to create a pool of exceptional engineering students, the College must enroll and retain a highly qualified, diverse student body. An essential component to recruitment and retention of the best and brightest is a wide array of scholarship opportunities for students. Scholarships provide students with a vote of confidence and allow them to focus full-time on the task at hand, making the most of a Michigan Engineering education.
